moats and boats and waterfalls

Alabama, Arkansas, I do love my ma and pa
Holy Moly, Me oh My, You're the apple of my eye
Laugh until we think we'll die, barefoot on a summer night
lyrics:  "Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
Summer in Alabama.  It's hot as hell.  But, we're all used to it.  We hope for summer breezes but, make due with late night swims.  On any given 90 degree day, I wear as little as possible while still being appropriate (for the office 4 days a week) and chic.  It ain't always easy.  It's mostly lil dresses, skirts and tanks or cut-off shorts and breezy blouses... topped off w/ funky shades, some jewelry and very tall platforms.  The taller the better.  A staple for many summer looks.. simple on top, whoa on bottom.   This outfit:  dress- gifted, shades- vintage (mom's), leather bracelet- gifted, platforms- Herve Leger.  These photos make me smile b/c they depict my simple summertime style... and, how appropriate that the summer sunlight was shining through the trees.  The sweetness of summer that makes me happy. 
It was nice to write here again.. Thank you for reading.
Happy Summer,
